    I don't use baking gums for this. Those things are horrid. If you wouldn't eat them right out of the bag, don't bake with them. Don't use any black ones. Ganong are the best-they don't make black ones. The easiest way to cut them is with scissors dipped in flour.

      This gumdrop cake is excellent. I used the small baking gums and the cake turned out perfect. I have used the regular gumdrops in the past and have cut them up into as small of pieces that I can get and sprinkle them with flour and they still sink to the bottom of the cake. Very frustrating. The small baking gums do not sink. Excellent recipe.

      This was awesome!!!-Easy to make. Took it to church and had several people ask for the recipe. The only change I would make is to add more gumdrops. I had baking gums but did cut up gumdrops. Am going to try it with the baking gums tho'. Great festive dessert!!!!
